Hey peeps,

Does anybody know of a good winter coat for Am Staffs? I've been looking for one that is either fleece and windproof or gortex, but haven't seen any quality ones. Any help would be great.

Happy New Year
Johnny

Some of the horse supply catalogues have really nice heavy duty horse-blanket style dog coats you might check some of those out.

ETA: what I"m talking about appears to be like what's on the link Peggy posted....those are nice looking coats!

My Taz has two coats now, one lighter and the other heavier (both fleece lined). Living in Montreal, Canada our winters can be harsh and Taz has been loving his coat even in -30C!! I will upload more pics later from home with both jackets, one is store bought (50% sale yesterday, lol) with room to grow and the other is home-made. Almost all pet stores here offer fleece lined coats, but they range from $60-70 for a medium to large sized dog, you can order on-line or commission a friend who sews to donate their talent :)

This pic is during a *beep* session with my friend who volunteered her sewing talents to do some doggie couture! I gave her my old kayak paddle jacket as a shell and a fleece sweater for the liner. The neck is neoprene with velcro, the sleeves we removed so he could run better, the pocket is original to the jacket and is on his back (holding poo bags!!) and there is a draw string behind his ribs to keep it snug to his belly. He is one toasty pup in this jacket! He is getting used to his Muttluks now too :D

And I love the Nordic style coats for your dogs!! Especially your King's fur collar, he looks so warm. Did you make them yourself or bribe a friend to help?
